Wu, 30, had earlier been accused by a teenager of having sex with her while she was drunk.

Wu denied the accusation.

The teenager claimed seven other women had contacted her to say Wu had seduced them with promises of jobs or other opportunities.

She said some of those were under 18 but didn’t say if they under China’s age of consent which is 14.

A police statement said Wu had been “criminally detained” on suspicion of rape “in response to relevant information reported on the internet” including that he “repeatedly lured young women to have sexual relations”.

It gave no other details.

The teenager detailed her accusations initially on social media and later in an interview with NetEase.

A day after the interview appeared, pelo menos 10 brands including Porsche and Louis Vuitton broke off endorsement and other deals with Wu.

“There was no ‘groupie sex’! There was no ‘underage’!” Wu wrote last month on his social media account.

“If there were this kind of thing, please everyone relax, I would put myself in jail!”
